Would you still play consoles if you could customize your dreams?

    You stay conscious in your dream and before sleep you can modify your dream to anything you want.

    If you pay twice I can make sure I can block any form of spirit interruption or telepathy. And unlimited number of multiplayer.

    Yes, and trained. But most people does not have that time or skill.

    (is it me, or are questions in this section getting more silly every day?)

    Okay, I know of lucid dreams, know what dreams are and what they aren't. But let's set that aside and pretend I can just get 8 extra hours of überrealistic video game pleasure for a moment (in other words: ignore everything in which games differ from dreams).
    I still would play video games:

    -video games have a sense of achievement and overcoming obstacles
    -video games relax me much more than sleeping
    -it has multiplayer

    I admit it: I thought the list would be longer. Of course I could add more, but then I'd have to point out differences between dreams and games. And I feel that that time would be wasted on proving something I already know and won't convince anyone anyhow.

    So...do YOU still play console games? :tpi:

    Yeah. Spiritual training takes a little preparation and I would like to see how other people imagine things.

    Occasionally it is nice to have someone else tell a story and not have to recite it or make it up yourself.

    Fully in control lucid dreams..great. modify it to anything you want before you go in...great. But what's to stop my sub-conscious from bulldozing my perfect dream and twisting it into something else. People have lucid nightmares and only being able to set the starting parameters doesn't guarantee a good time! :P On the other hand, having total control, knowing everything that's going to happen, and being able to change anything at will would get boring really fast.

    Anti-nightmare, and access able for people without experience. Not intended for epiphany.
    Sad how Catholics forbids spiritual training when it is critical in both early Christian and Judaism.

    Oh wait I forget to say that you can play video games in your dream.

    If I perfected the art of lucid dreaming I would only wake up to eat, go to the toilet, and apply cream to the bedsores.

    Underground, in my mother's basement.
    You kidding me? Hell Yeah. One time I had a lucid dream (My second one) that I was at a superhero training camp, it was the best shit I have ever experienced.

    To paraphrase Yahtzee, I prefer my entertainment to be designed and crafted by skilled artists than by a clueless dilettante (i.e., me).
